Some of the most over looked art, are background paintings for animated films. Even in the most obscure films. Disney's Brother Bear 2 has some of the most striking background paintings I've ever seen.
I would love to have Edward Hopper's atmospheric Nighthawks hanging on my wall!
me too! I adore almost all artworks from the 1920 to the 1950s.
More than just have it hanging on the wall, I actually want to go into the painting. I want to eavesdrop on the conversation between the man and the woman, to feel the stillness of the hour and experience the time when it was painted.
More of this kind of expressive appreciation, please.
The paintings of James Bama. The man has had two distinct phases to his career. Best known in the late 1960s and early 1970s for his cover paintings for the Doc Savage paperbacks as well as the first Star Trek Paperback. Of late he has become one of the great painters of the American West.
I used to be a customer at this comic book shop in San Diego. It was on University Avenue, near Park Boulevard and the old J.C. Penny, in the neighborhood known as Hillcrest. Anyhow, they had a lot of genre art posters there, you know, br Frazetta and others. There was this one poster-size print of a recent painting that showed a nude angel with wings flying over a flood, her long hair caught in the branches of a tree. I wanted to buy it but I didn't have that kind of money.
Does it sound familiar to anybody?
Wish I could identify the painter and see the painting again.
